In many big networks people generally do not configure VTP server and client mode because many a times it is required to create vlans at different switches locally which network admin or design guys do not want to propogate in into the network.
Many a times it is required to add a vlan in a switch which is already having another vlans but you do not want that vlan to be anywhere else in your network it is preferred to have switch in tranpsratent mode because transparenet mode allows you to create, delete and modify vlan database on your switch and will not propogate it anywhere in the network.
((because transparenet mode allows you to create, delete and modify vlan database on your switch and will not propogate it anywhere in the network))
Does that mean the similarity and difference between transparent mode and server mode,,,that in both of them we can create, modify, delete VALNs,,,,,,but in transparenent a switch does not propogate valns while in server it does ?
Recall: ((A bridge running in VTP transparent mode, as the name implies, passes VTP updates on transparently without installing them)) and ((delete and modify vlan database but in tranpsarent mode it is not propagated to the newtork ))
How can you manage to understand the two quoted above ?
What does it mean by his phrase :"the name implies, passes VTP updates on" ? could you explain
The phrase implies that if there is a switch in transparent mode in between switch running VTP server and client mode and any update coming from VTP server switch will be passed by the VTP transparent switch to the client switch and will not be updated on the VTP transpareent switch.
VTP server ---- transparent ---client
Now if any vlan is updated in vtp transparent switch it will not at all will leave the transparent switch and remain local to the switch.
